Funny how it works out, the person who cries the loudest about not being offered the "job" is usually the same person you wouldn't want to see there

xbusguy, the way then is do what the military does, line up and count off. The total is the total.What I find interesting , is that this information could very well be compiled with a knowledgeable person being at LINK and the Drop In Center. Compare notesThis is a plan by Loring Henderson to perpetuate his existence.

Why not let the homeless do it. They don't have much to do, and have expertise in the matter.

they are also talking about closing it down in April but I have a suspicion that is about funding also but do not know that for sure

Maybe if this episode comes into the light it can be addressed as it will only stay hidden in the dark if it does not come out and will continue to grow and get worse

Maybe the leaders of the sally should stop letting a employee/resident panhandle on the streets of lawrence under the guise of a ministry. you've seen him he is playing chess. He also may be calling your church for money for his phone.maybe they should have fired a manager who called a resident a pedophile with no cause which according to Wes Dalberg was to be fired after her time as lead bellringer but that did not happen. To quote dalberg "common sense will be restored after she is gone" Well the person she called that is gone but she is not. The only person fired over that was a worker who blew the whistle on her. WOW! This same person also told a resident the same thing earlier that evening. The resident was told that the dalbergs agreed with the manager. Fairness does not exist there. Why? Because people give money and do not hold them accountable and the dalbergs do not care enough to police their own gig but why should they, their life from cars to house to food are free I have personally loaded donations into employees cars that were specifically donated to help the homeless and they took it home How sad of a christian would do that? Answer a truly spiritual person would not do that, the sally would A couple of good people work there don't get me wrong but they are the ones who are not active in the church Surprise, surpriseThe gentleman she referred to is a good guy and their was no cause for what she said and subsequently did and he bought the dalberg line of she would be dealt with as I did about "making it right" The salvation army is not an organization that can be trusted unless they want your money

Salvation Army I can't say enough about it except that I worked almost 300 hours as a resident when they had noone else and did not get compensated or offered a job Yeah they do some good but are mainly in it for themselves make no mistake about it.” That is what was told to me by the person involved. Fair where does the kettle money go, what do they spend it on are they a top heavy organization What happens to my donations Most end up if they are clothes at the Social service league Food donations have rotted because they were not distributed to those in need“they give to all who need it w/o preaching to them about their church” Yea but they give more to those who at least verbally buy what they sell. Plus they lose money if they do by their contractChristian organization debatableHelpers SomewhatWorthy of praise a few of em

Yeah right it must be time for the sally and drop in to get grants Maybe they should pay someone who works 250 hours for them in a month and not all voluntary after being told they(SALVATION ARMY) would "make it right" then there could be one less but that would be helping. what they want to do is count to get more money for their pockets. This guy ran the shelter from 5pm til 8am for them and will not help him now that he has a real job He helped them but they will not help him What would jesus think He'd be turning over the tables there Count away just like kettle money
